Whether you are interested in acquiring fine Chinese paintings, sculptures, period furniture and decorative arts, antiquities, jewelry, or more,  Hotspot Auctions provides you with a number of convenient options to bid: online bid, absentee bid and telephone bid.

Bid Live Online

We offer real-time online bidding. You can view the items in our online catalog approximately one week to two weeks prior to the auction.

Absentee Bid

If you cannot attend the online live auction, let us bid for you. Tell us your maximum bid and we will bid on your behalf in increments from the opening bid amount. Click here to submit a form.

Telephone Bidding

To bid live via the telephone, you will need to register the day before the auction. We will do our very best to accommodate your request. Click here to submit a form.

Important Information

There is a 26% additional charge (Buyer’s Premium) added to the Hammer Price on all items. Sales tax will also be applied unless you have a valid resale license register with us on file, or arrange to have the item shipped outside of State of New York.


If you are interested in buying, or selling (consigning items for sale) at an upcoming auction, you can contact us and tell us about your ideas. Let's work together and make it happen.
